Story Hour: Join us every Thursday during the school year @ 10 am for Story Hour. There will be stories, games, crafts, playtime, and snacks!
Lego Night: Join us the FIRST Monday of every month @ 5:00 during the school year! Bring your adult over to the library and build some memories! Children K-6 grade.
Daughter Date Night: Parents and Daughters meet once a month during the school year to make a craft. Ages of Daughters 5-12.  First Tuesday of every month @ 5:00.
Adult Book Clubs: We have two adult books at the library. One meets the first Monday of the month at 6 pm, and the other one meets the fourth Monday of the month at noon. Our books our borrowed through KDLA that provides free book kits. If you would like to join, please contact the library for more information.
Paws to Read: In conjunction with the Mayfield Animal Shelter, this special program allows children to read aloud to a therapy dog or cat for 15 minutes. Patient, nonjudgmental pets help reluctant readers gain confidence and comfort with reading. After all, a dog will not correct them or make them feel awkward if they stumble.* Parents will need to fill out and sign a waiver before their child can participate. This program is open to children in grades K-6.
Anime Night: Teens come hang out with us! There will be food, games, anime, and prizes! Feel free to
dress up as your favorite character.
Family Movie Night: When four high-school kids discover an old video game console with a game they've never heard of--Jumanji--they are immediately drawn into the game's jungle setting, literally becoming the avatars they chose: gamer Spencer becomes a brawny adventurer; football jock Fridge loses (in his words) "the top two feet of his body" and becomes an Einstein; popular girl Bethany becomes a middle-aged male professor; and wallflower Martha becomes a badass warrior. Free Drinks and popcorn will be served. Children under the age of 10 should be with an adult. We will also have games to play along with the chance to win a prize.
American Red Cross Blood Drive:  Join us for our second blood drive at the library to help save lives. Please call 1-800-733-2767 or visit redcrossblood.org and enter GCPL to schedule an appointment.
Picture Frame Craft:  Create your own picture frame with washi tape. We will provide all the supplies, and you will need to sign up at the library to participate.
Bingo Night:  Join us for Bingo Night. Open to all ages. Play multiple times for a chance to win prizes!
Adult Paint Party: Join us for painting, snacks, and relaxing with friends. We will provide instructions on how to paint a beautiful sunflower painting. Sign up at the library if you want to attend.
Lego Saturday:  Come over to the library to build some memories on our Lego Saturday. The program will run 1 hour.  Open to all ages.
